Set in the cockpit of the Cobra (which is stated as the most powerful vehicle ever built), mankind's last hero must save humanity in what is left of the neon wastelands of Earth. The landscapes are painted with vibrant environments and hordes of mechanized forces. Rebellion promises a limitless campaign, assuring the player there is a high level of replayability because dozens of environments, missions, and levels that are all hashed together in procedurally generated campaign maps -- no two playthroughs ever being the same.

Players can attack Battlezone every which way without ever having similar experiences. Unlockables such as tanks, weapons, and special equipment will also be available throughout the game to enrich each playthrough.
